I dislike haiku's but I'm up for free poetry as well as shorts. Just for clarification. :P
I can't stand haiku, actually. The trick to making it fun is to choose a ridiculous topic that all must write their haiku about.
The company I was working as a consultant for just paid over a million $$$ for an information system that turned out to be a P.O.S. They were devastated. So, I took them out and everyone had to bring a haiku about how much the system sucked. It was hilarious the shite people camu up with. That's the trick to making something as boring as haiku fun.
Oberon, the terms... They've yet to be decided. I haven't done this before, so suggestions would be nice. I'm the overlord and I need small minions to do the grand scheming.
The cash prize is a means to get more people to participate and actually put effort into it. THIS NEEDS TO BE EPICCCCC. This is your term finals and you're straddling with a failing grade. Acing this bad boy will put you at a hefty C-!!!!! (think of it that way)
